Macaroni Pasta Salad

    25 min

    Another simple salad perfect with grilled meats or BBQ. (Based on my mother's recipe.) Measures are approximate - you can use more or less cheese, basil and mayonnaise to taste, and this is easily doubled or tripled. Can be made up to one day in advance.

    This is really nice, added some sweetcorn to the recipe to make it less boring.  -  21 Jul 2013
